How Does the Aircast Cryo/Cuff Work?
The Aircast Cryo/Cuff works by combining compression with cold therapy for a premium pain relieving experience. By constricting blood vessels and decreasing blood circulation, cold compression works to significantly reduces swelling and inflammation, while also helping to numb the area and lessen any pain.
How Do I Use the Cuff?
For information on how to use the cuff, simply follow the steps below:
Step One: Prepare the Cooler
Connect the blue tube to the cooler and fill the cooler to the line with water. Add ice and place the insulation disk on top. Close the lid of the cooler and allow up to five minutes for the water to cool.
Step Two: Apply the Cuff
Rest the cuff on the front of the knee and secure using the top strap. Flex the knee slightly and position the cuff so that the knee cap is exposed through the opening and secure using the bottom strap. (See figure 1).
Step Three: Fill the Cuff
Connect the blue tube to the cuff. If you are using the standard Aircast Cold Therapy Cooler, open the air vent located on the top of the cooler lid and raise the cooler no more than fifteen inches above the cuff. (See figure 2).
Hold the cooler in this position for about thirty seconds or until the cuff is full. Close the air vent on the cooler lid and disconnect the cuff from the cooler by the pressing the metal tab on the quick disconnect valve.
Step Four: Rechill the Water
Reconnect the blue tube to the cuff and raise the cuff above the cooler. This will allow for the water to drain from the cuff back into the cooler. Allow up to two minutes for the water to rechill before repeating the filling process.
For more information about how to use the cuff, see the manual below:
How Long Can I Use the Cuff For?
You can use the cuff for up to two hours per session but it is recommended that you leave a period of at least twenty minutes between uses. Unlike typical ice packs, the cooling unit recirculates the water to keep it nice and cold all the time, negating the need for constant re-freezing.
Can I Apply the Cuff Directly onto My Skin?
To avoid risk of skin burn, it is vital that you wrap the skin of the target area with a cloth or bandage or something similar, before using the cuff.
How Do I Clean the Cuff?
To keep your Cryo/Cuff clean, simply wash the cuff with soap and hot water before rinsing and leaving to air dry. This process can also be used to clean the blue tube and cooler units also.
